This rockstar model came to the studio today for some MMA-type fashion shots. First thought when I saw her: SHORT. She is TINY, and a dancer (so it would take some direction to make her look mean and threatening). Had a chat with her while in makeup and she has a big personality that makes up for her size.
Anyways, the MUA used some synthetic stuff to make her look “wet” without drying out or messing up the makeup. Awesome! I have to find out from her what that was. Everyone on the crew did an awesome job that morning! We even had a near pro MMA fighter consulting on the stances, applying hand wraps correctly, and on proper kicking form. Look for JoJo on the upcoming MMA reality show, the Book of James.
Lighting used: AB in softbox on camera left, ABR above/behind model on camera right.
